11 July 10, 2007Compiled by Gurudutt Mundkur11 Part II Three years ago, in a school in San Jose, California, a group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present "Seven Wonders of the World."

14 July 10, 2007Compiled by Gurudutt Mundkur14 While gathering the votes, the teacher noticed that one student, Lina, had not completed her voting-paper yet.

25 July 10, 2007Compiled by Gurudutt Mundkur25 The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for granted are truly wonderous!

26 July 10, 2007Compiled by Gurudutt Mundkur26 A gentle reminder --- -
